QLDTraffic is the official source of live traffic and travel information from the Queensland Government. It lets you check traffic conditions and plan your journey before you drive.

Managed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, QLDTraffic provides information on road conditions throughout Queensland, including crashes and hazards, road closures and restrictions, roadworks and special events. The app also provides access to web cameras that relay near real-time traffic imagery.

Add your favourite routes to the app, like the trip to the office or a car journey to school, and QLDTraffic will inform you of traffic issues on the way. It’ll even send you personalised push notifications if something happens on your favourite routes, so that you’ll know before you go.


· Save favourite routes and places to receive personalised traffic alerts as push notifications
· See live traffic alerts and events on a map
· Filter traffic alerts to see:
o What’s happening on your routes or around your current location
o Incidents near your calendar events (if you’ve set a location for the event)
o Crashes, flooding, and hazards
o Road closures and restrictions
o Roadworks and special events
o Traffic flow and congestion
o Traffic web cameras
· Add a route by searching for a way to drive
· Use travel mode while you’re on the move to get live traffic alerts throughout your journey
o Travel mode includes audio announcements, so you can continue to pay attention to the road.
· Add custom routes by recording your trip in travel mode

Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Slow, lacks info & “only” TMR

The road closure info needs to be updated more often in a rapidly-changing situation such as a flood event. The map is slow to use: clunky to move and zoom in or out. There are different coloured stripes on roads, which presumably indicate something about their accessibility, but there is no explanation anywhere in the app or online about exactly what the colour codes mean. Finally, when using the function to search for a specific road, MOST roads are “not TMR controlled roads” and therefore there is no data available about them. Can you really not get your collective selves together in 2022 and stop splitting hairs over who is responsible for what and just give us the info we need?!!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your comment. QLDTraffic is available to a large number of local council and government agencies who have access to the platform to supply information regarding non TMR controlled roads. Over the past few days Queensland has experienced an extremely unusual rain event which led to a very high number of closures. The sheer number of closures was larger than ever before and caused a significant slow down when the app was trying to display the information. This will be a priority for remediation.

Crashes on ipad Air and iphone 7+ constantly

Cant search for any address as it just wont stay open long enough to actually search. Same issue on both devices and both have ios13.2.3. Cant honestly be the only one im sure 🤷‍♀️
PS hasn’t been updated since August 2017 - assume they lost interest. Which is sad have a few recommendations rather then managing your own maps why not merge your maps with google? Then you can utilise what they already provide but if you offer the functionality to report incidents while they use your app I think it would be more efficient and definitely help you provide an upto date service rather then telling people it could take days to show up. The data would definitely assist you to also know what roads are causing the most issues I would have thought too. Also manage emergency services quicker too?? Could also partner up with the emergency services app too?? Anyways if you need some direction id be happy to assist 👍

Difficult to navigate

I got this app to check for the quickest route. I found it difficult to navigate and doesn’t show the estimated travel time on the map itself. Google maps is easier to quickly choose the best route
